    I have figured out some important things through your website post. One other thing I would like to express is that there are plenty of games available on the market designed in particular for toddler age kids. They incorporate pattern identification, colors, creatures, and shapes. These typically focus on familiarization rather than memorization. This keeps a child engaged without feeling like they are studying. Thanks
